Runaway Planet Content Group launches as a bold, new finance and production company headed by veteran director/producer Brett Donowho, seasoned film executive Anthony Callie, and Florida-based financier Mickey Gooch, with Donowho and Callie overseeing day-to-day operations from their Hollywood offices.

Runaway Planet introduces its slate with Operation Husky, the previously untold story of the Allied invasion of Sicily in World War II, which the company is financing and producing.

Brett Donowho will direct Runaway Planet's war-drama debut, written by Andrew M. Henderson and produced by Callie, Donowho, and Brandon K. Hogan of Paradox Film Group. Runaway Planet has also welcomed accomplished casting director Corbin Bronson as their in-house Executive in Charge of Talent and Casting.

With an enduring commitment to socially relevant, premium content in the 10-to-40-million-dollar range and the financing to bring their vision to bear, Runaway Planet invites open collaboration across multiple genres in pursuit of meaningful media. "We like to think of ourselves as a unique destination for film; a 'planet' to runaway to that gives our audiences a place to escape. Our goal is to make movies we want to watch," said co-founders Donowho and Callie. "We're able to take our collective experience to strategically guide our projects from development to delivery and bring the most impactful films to market."

Callie most recently served as the Chief Operating Officer at Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films, following stints at Oceana Media Finance and years of practice as an entertainment attorney with a focus on film finance, production and distribution.

Donowho brings over two decades of hands-on directorial and producorial acumen to Runaway Planet. From his early years as an agent and Chief Operating Officer of the Kaplan-Stahler Agency, he developed a keen eye for story and a knack for navigating packaging and negotiations.  Donowho most recently directed Acts of Violence, starring Bruce Willis, Cole Hauser and Mike Epps.

Founding partner Mickey Gooch said of the duo, "Brett [Donowho] and Tony [Callie] have the perfect combination of business savvy and creativity." Noted for his own billion-dollar market sense, Gooch spent twenty-five years building up global brokerage giant GFI Group before entering the world of film finance. Gooch went on to say, "I whole-heartedly believe in their vision for the company, taste in content, and professional insights. I'm honored to be a part of this journey."
